Review: Broken Earth Trilogy

 The Broken Earth Trilogy by N.K. Jemisim is a series that starts slow and a little confusing (you must read the glossary before starting the first book) but after that initial stumble picks up into a solid pace and engrossing story. I quickly found myself enjoying the diverse characters with realistic motivations in a world setting that felt rich and natural in the enviornment protrayed.

The writing and narrative storytelling is clear and engaging, and the descriptions adequate without being too in depth. As the story accelerated into the last book I was devouring the pages and was satisfied with how the it ended overall.

I give the trilogy as a whole an 8 out of 10 and highly reccomend it as something very different from usual sci/fi or fantasy fare.
